(3) 2010 P2P - Report 3

Here we are again on another rest day. Well, actually two days this time, because not going to Kyrgystan has allowed (forced) the organisers to do so. We are thus spending three nights at the 5-star Almaty Intercontinental in Kazakhstan.

The last six competitive days in Mongolia, from Ulaan Baatar to the border with Russia, were very very tough.

(1) 2010 Peking to Paris: Here we go again!

Three years after the 100 year celebration of the original Peking to Paris of 1907 we are again set to take part in another 9,000 miles Challenge, linking the same two cities, driving the same 1956 Magnette ZA. It will start in Beijing on September 9th and will finish again in Paris at Place Vendôme on October 16th

 Why do it again, you might ask?

Casablanca Challenge

It is over a week now since we arrived home safely after our Moroccan adventure, where the weather was sunny and even warm (up to 28 C).
Very tough (proper) rally with long stages and tight time schedules, long climbs (with dangerously high side drops). All twisty in tarmac but usually narrow, with uneven road sides (gravel) and potholes. Great rally roads and wonderful scenery.
